'Dear Dad...'

Film & Campaign Description

"Dear Dad, I often think how hard it must have been for you and mum to have a child diagnosed with type 1. It's frightening for any parent to understand and deal with..."

Katherine's dad, Jonathan, vowed to do whatever he could to make life better for all of us affected by type 1 diabetes. Jonathan set up JDRF UK and like you and the rest of our type 1 community, he dreamt of finding a cure. Jonathan brought our community together and gave us a voice. Like our community, he knew that research held the key to changing the future for all of us affected by type 1.

In this video, Katherine shares a letter to her dad. In response, hundreds of us rallied together to an incredible £110,000. This is helping to fund type 1 research that will take us a step closer to the cure we all long for.


JDRF is the type 1 diabetes charity. With the help of our wonderful supporters we fund medical research to cure, treat and prevent type 1. Together we will create a world without type 1.
